Property Buying Tips

  • Do a Inspection visit !

    Quite simply, it is the most effective and informative way of viewing property in Portugal
    There is only so much that we can tell you about the stunning locations you can find along the Portuguese and Spanish coast line and the best way to buy a home overseas is during one of our specially subsidized Property Inspection Trips. All are tailor-made to suit your personal requirements. The inspection is a two, three or four day information and viewing trip where you will see property for sale within your price range. INSPECTION TRIPS FROM £149 PER PERSON

  • Viewing properties

    Here are some useful tips to keep in mind when looking for the house of your dreams:

    View the properties as soon as possible. Leave it too long and you could lose out.
    If two of you are buying together, decide who will be the chief viewer, and weed out all but the strongest candidates... and Don't be afraid to make a second or 3rd visit it can be amazing what you missed the first time

  • Hire an Agent

    An agent can send you listings directly from MLS that fit your parameters, and you won't waste time looking at active short contingent listings that are under contract.

  • Find a Home to Buy

    Finding a property
    As well as looking in estate agents’ windows, the internet is also an excellent research tool for finding properties. There are now many websites specifically geared for property searches, as well as those catering for people who want to sell there property. Most estate agents also have their own websites.

  • Foreigners to bring boost to Portugal's property market

    Home ownership in Portugal is now especially appealing to wealthy foreigners thanks to the introduction of a new law making it possible for non-EU citizens to get residency there through investing in property.

    The new immigration law, dubbed the “Golden passport”, came into effect this month (October) and enables citizens of countries outside of the European Union to obtain Portuguese residency through property ownership, so long as the minimum acquisition value is €500,000 (around £403K or $645K).
